Go On – Try Something New

You know how there is something lurking in the back of your mind that you really fancy having a go at?? …. well today Beloved took me into our nearest town to the Riverlight Festival to have a taster session at something new

I have always had this image in my head that given the chance I could be a kayaking supremo

Not sure who I was kidding – if the aim is just to keep going in circles I was the bee’s knees – after a while I sort of got the gist of going in a straight line …for all of 30 seconds at a time

OK so I kind of got tangled up with a tree branch at one point – but I’m sure that could happen to anyone right??

I was full of confidence that I didn’t capsize or drift anywhere near any rapids, PLUS one of the organisers overwhelmed that a grey haired lady of a certain age was hyper, she cheered me on when I glanced at the paddle boards, the club treasurer was summoned and before I knew what was happening I was off once more onto the river

No I didn’t get round to standing up, the local press were taking photos for the midweek paper and there was no way on this earth did I want to be photographed belly up floating off into the distance

What a fantastic morning, was I glad I tried something new – you bet I am …… must dash I’m off to book some lessons I do believe SUP my just be right up my street

  1. How glad I was to see your post. I have missed you and hoped all was well. Good for you for learning the new skill of this sort of boating. I miss the dear Cobs-Do you know anything? Please stay in touch! love Michele

    1. Good afternoon, how lovely to hear from you, I do hope all is well with you and your loved ones, I haven’t heard from Cobs for many a while I do hope she is OK xx

  2. What a wonderful time you had. It looks like fun. One of our ladies from our church belongs to a Kayaking group. They go out on the rivers. I am not sure I would want to. Mainly because I don’t think I could fit in the Kayak! Lol. You looked like you were doing great at both Kayak and paddle board. I still want to learn to drive a horse and cart. That’s on my bucket list. Enjoy your lessons.

    1. I’m not even sure why this was on my to do list!! but I’m so pleased I gave it a go, my coaching sessions begin next month, out of the 2 I think I enjoyed the stand up paddle board most – I will begin with kayak lessons first as this is something that I can do with the grandsons …. kayak purchase pending LOL
